In our eleven years on the market, we’ve helped clients turn their Proof of Concept (PoC) into a step-by-step development process. For this, we used different types of client collaboration. Often, the choice of collaboration model depends on the level of detail included in the project requirements: Is this just an idea for the project in your head? Or specifications to the last detail?

Our pricing models

We believe there’s no universal truth on which pricing model is better. Much depends on the project context.


Steelkiwi charges you only for time spent on the project at regular intervals (e.x. weekly bi-weekly, or monthly)

Works best for medium to large projects with dynamic requirements and not-fully specified scope and variable workload

Steelkiwi charges you a fixed amount every month, making the monthly/yearly budget 100% predictable.

Works best for large projects with an outstaffing model when requirement management and project management are performed on the customer side.
